Osama bin Laden praised martyrdom in a new videotape posted on a militant Web site Sunday by Al-Qaida's media production wing. The bin Laden clip, which lasted less than a minute, was undated and part of a 40-minute video featuring purported al-Qaida fighters in Afghanistan paying tribute to fellow militants who have been killed in the country. Bin Laden glorified those who die in the name of jihad, or holy war, saying even the Prophet Muhammed "had been wishing to be a martyr." "The happy (man) is the one that God has chosen him to be a martyr," added bin Laden, who appeared weary and was shown outdoors wearing army fatigues.
